The Colour of Justice: Based on the transcripts of the Stephen Lawrence Inquiry
Richard Norton-Taylor (Editor)
Black teenager Stephen Lawrence was stabbed to death in a racist attack by a gang of white youths. The police investigation failed to provide sufficient evidence to convict, and the public inquiry into the investigation caused a national outcry. An outraged British public discovered that their system of justice, a model for judicial systems around the world, was seriously flawed. The inquiry found that the police force was gulity of "institutionalised racism."
"This book should be on every syllabus... The incidents (Richard Norton-Taylor) has chosen manage to capture the essence of this horrible affair and demonstrate what the abstract concept we call racism means in all its brutal and potentially murderous reality."
